402-0053-00L | Physics II | O | 8 credits | 4V + 2U | A. Imamoglu | |

Abstract | The goal of the Physics II class is an introduction to quantum mechanics | |||||

Objective | To work effectively in many areas of modern engineering, such as renewable energy and nanotechnology, students must possess a basic understanding of quantum mechanics. The aim of this course is to provide this knowledge while making connections to applications of relevancy to engineers. After completing this course, students will understand the basic postulates of quantum mechanics and be able to apply mathematical methods for solving various problems including atoms, molecules, and solids. Additional examples from engineering disciplines will also be integrated. | |||||

252-0836-00L | Computer Science II | O | 4 credits | 2V + 1U | F. Mattern | |

Abstract | Introduction to basic problem solving methods, algorithms, and data structures. Topics: divide and conquer, recursion, sorting algorithms, backtracking, game tree search, data structures (lists, stacks, binary trees, etc.), discrete simulation, concurrency, complexity, verification. In the assignments and exercises, the programming language Java is used. | |||||

Objective | Introduction to the general methods of computer science for electrical engineers. Also provides basic skills for advanced exercises and projects later in the electrical engineering program. | |||||

Content | Part II of the lecture concentrates on the most common problem solving skills, algorithms, and data structures. It also teaches fundamental concepts and mechanisms of structured programming. Furthermore, working with formal systems, the necessity of abstraction, and the importance of modeling in computer science will be motivated. The emphasis of the lecture is on practical concepts of computer science. Specific topics are: complexity and correctness of algorithms, divide and conquer, recursion, algorithms for sorting, backtracking, game tree search, data structures (lists, stacks, inary trees, etc.), discrete simulation, concurrency, and verification. For the assignments and exercises, the programming language Java is used. Here, also modularization, abstraction, encapsulation, and object orientation will be considered. Occasionally, short remarks on the historical context of relevant concepts are given. In the practice groups, students program an automatic player for the game "Reversi"; at the end of the semester a tournament will take place. | |||||

Lecture notes | Copies of slides, extended with bonus slides that give hints to advanced concepts and present the historical context of selected concepts. | |||||

227-0077-10L | Electronic Circuits | O | 4 credits | 2V + 2U | Q. Huang | |

Abstract | Introductory lecture on electronic circuits. Transistor fundamentals, analysis and design of transistor based electronic circuits such as amplifiers and filters; operational amplifiers and circuits based thereon. | |||||

Objective | Modern, transistor-based electronics has transformed our lives and plays a crucial role in our economy since the 2nd half of last century. The main objective of this course in electronic circuits is to introduce the concept of the active device, including operational amplifiers, and their use in amplification, signal conditioning, switching and filtering to students. In addition to gaining experience with typical electronic circuits that are found in common applications, including their own Gruppenarbeit and Fachpraktikum projects, students sharpen their understanding of linear circuits based on nonlinear devices, imperfections of electronic circuits and the concept of design (as opposed to analysis). The course is a prerequisite for higher semester subjects such as analog integrated circuits, RF circuits for wireless communications, A/D and D/A converters and optoelectronics. | |||||

Content | Review of transistor devices (bipolar and MOSFET), large signal and small signal characteristics, biasing and operating points. Single transistor amplifiers, simple feedback for bias stabilization. Frequency response of simple amplifiers. Broadbanding techniques. Differential amplifiers, operational amplifiers, variable gain amplifiers. Instrumentation amplifiers: common mode rejection, noise, distortion, chopper stabilization. Transimpedance amplifiers. Active filters: simple and biquadratic active RC-filters, higher order filters, biquad and ladder realizations. Switched-capacitor filters. | |||||
